Language and Cognition

  • Our centre is dedicated to researching the brain activities involved in language development (including oral language and literacy) in monolingual and bilingual children. Through this research, our centre aims to deepen our understanding of how language skills are acquired and how they can be optimized through early intervention and targeted support. Our studies focus on brain imaging techniques such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and electroencephalography (EEG) to investigate the neural networks involved in language processing and comprehension, with a particular emphasis on identifying potential biomarkers for developmental language disorders.
  • Our ultimate goal is to develop evidence-based interventions that can help children with language difficulties achieve their full potential.
